Harvey Richards photographed logging in the forests of western California and Oregon in the 1960’s and 1970’s when the last great stands of old growth redwood forests were logged out. He captured images of giant logs filling lumber mill yards, scenes that will never be seen again. He photographed the giant haulers and loaders designed for these magnificent trees now gone, along with the lumber mills and mill towns that grew up to harvest them. When the loggers moved on to new forests to clear cut, Harvey photographed the devastation left behind. He followed the logging trucks into the coastal towns and photographed immense lumber mills along the rivers with their vast capacity to mill logs into lumber and to move it to domestic and foreign markets. In short he captured a peak moment in the history of extractive and wasteful logging practices that is gone forever and that has left a permanent mark on our planet, something that Judi Barri termed “Ripping the lungs out of the planet.”
